The Spring Canyon Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This line was built as a narrow gauge line by the Spring Canyon Coal Company in order to reach their mines along Spring Canyon. The line was converted to standard gauge in 1912; it was purchased by the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad the following year.

Abandonment came in 1974.

See also the abandoned Spring Canyon Branch of the Utah Railway that ran adjacent to this line.

I miss the old Norfolk Southern Railroad but the new

spur is just as good.
